discipline in the company. last month was a big month. a lot of incentives came at the market. toyota led the market with a lot of incentives. old gm would have thrown a lot of money at this market just to catch up with everybody else. this gm is showing more discipline and i think you'll see that in the financial results. >> reporter: your inventory is already lower than you would like it to be. how much do you have to ramp it up here in the next few months, especially if the auto market really starts to take off and the consumer starts coming into showrooms? >> we're exploring ways all the time right now of how to get more product into this market. we have undercalled certain products -- equinox, terrain, some of these products we've undercalled and we're doing whatever we can to get more product into this market. >> reporter: but you're already at three shifts in this plant. the question will start coming up, does gm need to start considering reopening some of the plants that it earmarked for closure or delaying the closure of some of those plants, because it takes some time? >> i thin

and 15 percent think toyota is the better car. again, a little bit of a difference, but not necessarily a huge difference like you've seen in the past, jane. jane: jenna, how is our investment in general motors working out for us as taxpayers? >> we do have big news with general motors saying they're paying back the remaining $6.7 billion, part of that loan, they're paying back $4.7 billion, the more than $6 billion total, so that's one part of our ownership in general motors, though. we still own 60 percent of that company. that comes to roughly more than $50 billion. but we're really not going to know just how much we have invested until we hopefully get paid back and that's when general motors will once again sell shares to the public and hopefully we'll get paid back then. a quick note, ed whittaker, will be appearing on television commercial talking about the fact that gm did pay back this loan early. he also is going to be going to d.c. tomorrow to give a report back to congress about just what our investment looks like and by the way, jane, he is going to be traveling on a charte
